Some people are gleefully, openly rejoicing at Mike Flynn’s resignation as National Security Advisor, but probably not for the reasons you would think.
Some of those people include Hillary Clinton and the guy who used to be her Senior Advisor at the State Department, Philippe Reines.
First a little backstory.
It was widely known that during the election, Flynn Tweeted and then deleted links to websites reporting on Pizzagate.
Now, after he has been forced to step down amid a scandal involving undisclosed diplomatic talks he had with the Russian Ambassador during the election, it is Hillary and her pal who are gleefully Tweeting references to Pizzagate at Flynn.
First, Reines Tweeted this:
“Dear Mike Flynn & Mike Flynn Jr.,
What goes around COMETS around.
And given your pizza obsession…,”
complete with a link to getting a job at Domino’s Pizza,
signed “XO, Philippe”.
Hillary quickly reTweeted Reines’ Pizzagate sentiment, adding:
Well… here’s where it gets interesting.
Reines had predicted several days ago — before the story broke about Flynn’s indiscretion — that Flynn would have one of the shortest stints as National Security Advisor.
And Reines, who actually sent out many a Tweet personally rejoicing over Flynn’s departure —
If you had 24 days in your office pool, time to collect. https://t.co/JRbE0D8Os6
— Philippe Reines (@PhilippeReines) February 14, 2017
— isn’t just any old former Hillary State Dept. chum.
For starters, the description he put up for himself on Twitter is a John Podesta quote, “Phillipe [sic] is the only person about whom you’re torn between patting him on the back and trying to get him committed to Bellevue.”
Reines also happens to be Managing Director at DC-based strategic advisory firm Beacon Global Strategies.
A little description:
A September 2013 article, “Clinton Allies Join Bush Alum To Form New Consulting Group” in Defense News (which has since been taken down, even from the Internet Archive), describes Beacon Global Strategies as unique for a Washington consulting firm because of its partners’ intent to eventually return to government. The article noted that “Consulting groups are routinely a place where former public servants are put out to pasture, a last stop to conclude careers built on senior government positions. But a group of former senior officials is building a new firm, Beacon Global Strategies, while retaining an additional goal. They all want to go back into government. Part of the confidence in future public service may stem from a combination of significant titles and relative youth, paired with the fact that most of the founders of the firm have ties to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who may be a presidential favorite heading into the 2016 election if she decides to run. Clintons longtime spokesman Philippe Reines and one-time national security adviser turned Assistant Secretary of State Andrew Shapiro are teaming with Jeremy Bash and Michael Allen to launch the group.” (stub source)
The firm claims to specialize in foreign affairs, national defense, cybersecurity, intelligence, and homeland security, in addition to foreign policy. What they call “strategic consulting,” sounds a like a private CIA wing. The firm has also been called a DC “revolving door on steroids”.
Also on board as a Senior Counselor at Beacon are former Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta and former CIA Deputy Director Mike Morell, who infamously went on PBS’ Charlie Rose Show last August saying he wanted to make the Russians and Iranians “pay a price” in Syria, which Rose clarified by asking, “We make them pay the price by killing Russians? And killing Iranians?” to which Morell responded, “Yes, covertly”.
In short, these people don’t play around. Reines isn’t just some guy making an offhand remark.
One has to wonder… was the coordinated Tweet and Retweet (which has now been widely publicized in the mainstream media as Hillary just being snarky) really a message to Flynn and the Trump administration about who was really behind Flynn’s ousting?
